Hey I wanted to know the minimum age for owning handguns in PA. I keep seeing its 18 to own 21 to purchase, but that doesn't exactly make sense. Do I need someone to go purchase it for me? Cause that kind of sounds like a straw-man purchase.If its legal does anyone feel up to doing it? I know no one in pa . Also, is open carry legal over there? I keep hearing it is but never see anyone over there carrying and sometimes people on the internet can be misleading. Im talking about Philadelphia in this instance,which is also where im moving too.
